Men’s Style Resolutions for 2022

Feature: Long Read
Words by Joseph Bobowicz

The world has changed immeasurably over the past two years. Flexible working has become the norm for many of us. Meanwhile, a more conscious collective mindset is sowing the seeds of fashion’s bright future. By rethinking how we dress and what we purchase – being inquisitive about production methods, mindful of craft and investing in versatility – we lay the foundations for a future-proof wardrobe.

Choose Craft

There’s something special about meticulously made clothes. Clues of craft such as patchwork, embossing and embroidery are often indications of quality. Maison Margiela is esteemed for its artisanal aesthetic, finishing each garment with four visible stitches as a signature of excellence. Beyond what’s visible, you can get hands on. Inspect the fabric. If it’s wool, is it thick? Has it piled? With brands like Eleventy, ultimately classic, luxury is felt – testified by impossibly soft knitwear.

Rewrite the Rules

Traditional dress codes have lost their stronghold. When it comes to styling yourself in 2022 and beyond, rules can be bent. Today, your favourite jumper is also a scarf. Shirts can be worn casually layered on top of one another, rather than smart and solo – no longer restricted by office protocols. The beauty of this approach? It’s resourceful and, importantly, empowering. Your wardrobe works harder for you, allowing you to rewear classics in contemporary new ways and adapt to life’s changing requirements.

Invest Consciously

Innovation is key in fashion’s future. Nanushka is a Budapest-based brand that aims to eliminate waste from its supply chain by 2030. Its plan of attack? Recycling deadstock and surplus materials into style-forward staples – a vegan leather trench coat ticks every box. Where possible, look for green certifications that speak to traceable textiles and transparency. Arch4 lists the Global Organic Textile Standard and the Social Accountability Accreditation Services among its myriad credentials.

Work Your Accessories

Practical accessories are worth their weight in gold. Better yet if they can be used seven days a week. In this arena, heritage names like Mulberry can be trusted – the brand elevates outdoorsy backpacks with slick, textured leathers. Ideal for the boardroom, hand luggage and weekends out of town. Elsewhere, a bright palette can rejuvenate seasonal essentials. The likes of wintry scarves gain character from bright shades. Canary yellow? Yes, please.
